La Mer de la Tranquilité / The Sea of Tranquility

Film director: 
Antoon Cox
About the Director: 

Antoon Cox was born in Leuven, Belgium (1980). He holds masters' degrees in Applied Linguistics and in Journalism. Currently, he works as a researcher in intercultural communication and ethnolinguistics at the Brussels University College, and as a host at Radio Scorpio in Leuven (Belgium). Since 2007 he has been involved in teaching, and in fixing and directing in Belgium and India for PSBT, NBC, Arte, and Tele5. Antoon is best described as a natural surrealist documentary filmmaker: he likes to show the hidden or unexplored angles of everyday reality and to tell the story of people from all walks of life, each time breaking the logical connections and exceeding reasonable expectations. His future ambitions aim at superposing extreme cultural boundaries treated with a pinch of satire and elegance.

Film synopsis: 
In the first half of the 20th century, La Louvière was a prosperous mining town in Belgium. Today, more than three decades after the closing of the last mine, this same place is generally known as a grim town famous for its high unemployment rates. Still, to those who are willing to look beyond the statistics, this town reveals its beauty. In particular, this documentary shows a multicultural and convivial dream come true. The two main protagonists (see picture) mama Jeanne from Congo and Pierre (see picture) from France mount a terril (slag heap) and discover the beauty of their habitat. Comming from the Congo Mama mounts the terril in a typical African dress and high heels. The little mountain reminds her of Congo. At the summit treats the local population to blazed bananas and Chicken Moambe. The party at the summit depicts well the diversity of this town with the Africans to be the latest immigrants after the Italians, the Turks. Towards the end they are all surprised by the resurrection of singer Claude François, the French singing legend who passed away in an accident just a few years after La Louvière's last mine was closed down.
